In Michigan, one can find high-tech companies in unexpected places, such as Dexter, a small town near Ann Arbor. Founded in 1992, k-Space Associates is an international leader in the field of metrology tools for the growing semiconductor, thin-film, and photovoltaic (PV) industries as well as research institutions.
k-Space product line includes kSA RateRat Pro to measure deposition rate during thin-film production, and kSA MOS to monitor thin-film stress, and other tools for monitoring nearly the entire range of thin-film deposition processes. They all use optical imaging technology.
Since k-Space is a relatively small company, it is able to maintain close contact to its customers and provide quick and friendly technical support.
